Thai Yoga Massage

for Balance

Certification Training –

Thai Yoga Massage for Balance focuses on improving the function of Sen Ida and Pingala; these unilateral lines each govern one side of the body, much like the Ida and Pingala Nadis in Yoga. By encouraging flow and ease along these lines we bring balance not just to mind and body in a uniquely soothing bodywork sequence consisting of movement, stretching, intention and direct pressure. Enhancing this 1.5 hour bodywork sequence is a unique Thai Yoga/Reusi dat Ton sequence, including philosophy and pranayama,  for the practitioner that creates greater physical ease for Thai Yoga Massage and everyday activities. 35 NCBTMB CEUs*, 26 YA CEUs**, and a certificate in Thai Yoga Massage.

Here’s what people have been saying about the Thai Yoga included in this training…

Marisa’s Thai yoga class was a new and invigorating experience for me! The interaction with breath was different and the twists and poses were challenging. I left the class feeling refreshed and as always, grateful for Marisa’s kind, generous, supportive, thoughtful, and above all- fun approach to teaching yoga. I’ll definitely seek out more Thai yoga in the future, especially if it is taught by Marisa!

I was surprised, and pleased, to find that areas of my body not normally accessed by yoga were being nicely stretched. This aspect of Thai Yoga connected strongly with my experience
of Thai yoga massage, which has the same effect of penetrating areas of my body not normally touched.
